Adomah mourns Wakaso loss for final AFCON match

Adomah mourns Wakaso loss for final AFCON match

Mubarak Wakaso is out of Niger game with suspension

Albert Adomah has bemoaned the loss of key midfielder Mubarak Wakaso for Ghana’s final group game against Niger.

The Espanyol player was booked for lifting his shirt while celebrating his goal in the 1-0 win over Mali on Thursday.

Wakaso’s 39th minute booking sees him suspended for the final Group B clash with Niger haven picked up a yellow card in the group opener with DR Congo.

Coach Akwasi Appiah will now have to dig deep into his squad to find a replacement for the hard-tackler who has been so good for the Black Stars at the Nations Cup.

And Adomah recognizes the great loss to the team occasioned by the suspension but is confident a suitable replacement will be found.

“It’s a shame when you lose one of your key players but at the same time we’ve got players that can hopefully cover and do the same job he (Wakaso) does,” the Bristol City winger told MTNFootball.com.

Christian Atsu is already being talked of as a replacement for Wakaso on the left-side of Ghana’s midfield.

Coach Appiah could however be forced to change his tactics entirely with central midfielder Derek Boateng as the replacement.

    GH VS MALI!
    WE MUST BUILD MORE ON OUR 2 TOUCH AND PASSING ACCURACY. ESPECIALLY IN AND AROUND THE 18 YARD BOX.
    our PLAYERS LACK DISCIPLINE
    TOO MANY UNECESSARY TACKLES. TOO MANY YELLOW CARDS. IT WILL HAUNT US LATER OOOOO
    IN 2 GAMES, WE HAVE 6 YELLOW CARDS. IF WE BAG 3 YELLOW CARDS PER GAME IN THIS TOURNEY, WHERE WILL IT END US?
    AA IS TOO HARDHEADED. CONTINUING TO USE AFFUL AT LEFTBACK IS A BAD IDEA.
    IF AND WHEN WE MEET A BETTER OPPONENT, GH WILL PAY DEARLY
    PAINSTIL SHOULD NOT BE STARTED ON THE RIGHT. BOYE, BOYE…WAT WAS HE THINKING? I TOLD U AA, NOT
    TO START BOYE. DEFENDERS PROTECT THEIR GOALIES FROM HARM. WAT BOYE DID WAS VER VERY STUPID…
    USE AFFUL ON THE RIGHT. WAKASSO OR KISSI ON THE LEFT/3. KASA AT THE 11. KASA HAS BEEN INACTIVE AND
    USELESS IN MIDFIELD. USE HIM ON THE WING AT THE 11. LET HIM AND ATSU OVERLAP…
    THE TEAM SHOULDNT BE TOO EXCITED. WE COULDNT SCORE FROM OPEN PLAY BUT THRU A PENALTY
    GYAN WAS USELESS. EVEN THE WHITE COMMENTATORS SAID THEY WERENT IMPRESSED WITH GYAN THIS FAR.
    KASA IN MIDFIELD WAS ALSO USELSS. THE SOLUTION: START CLOTTEY AHEAD OF GYAN. USE KASA ON THE 11,
    ATSU ON THE 7 AS A SUB FOR ADOMAH
    AA MUST STRIVE FOR PERFECTION!. STRIVE FOR PERFECTION!

    • MUSAH FIFA says:

      good comment boy, you are good, you can even coach the team, i don’t what Gyan is doing, very useless striker, he’s of no use in the team, is Jordan not better than this useless captain? Ghana is playing with minus one,our coach should change him and bring in Clottey,and also bring in Annan for Derek Boaten for the last match against Niger.

  2. kwame pito says:

    A.A piece of advice. we need to play KASA at Left-wing in the niger game. Not midfield, Not Leftback. LEFT WING!

    • GH FUO, THINK BIG!!! says:

      HW3, THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE BLACKMAN N WHITE MAN IS RESEARCH N NYANSA. THIS IS HOW STUPID THE BLACK MAN IS…LET THRE BE A ROAD WITH NAILS IN IT. THE WHITEMAN WILL SAY. WAIT. LETS GET OUT ALL THE NAILS BEFORE WE PROCEED WITH OUR VEHICLE BECAUSE WE DONT WANT OUR TYRES TO BUST. THE BLACKMAN ON THE OTHERHAND WILL PERSIST ON THIS SAME ROAD UNTIL HIS TYRES ARE DESTROYED. THEN, HE WILL SPEND MONEY TO BUY NEW TYRES AND MORE MONEY TO REMOVE THE NAILS.

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

  3. pk says:

    An opportunity for Wakaso to be fresh for the knockout stage. Get him there.

  4. IYKE says:

    the GFA should contest this yellow card booking for Wakasso, it is obviously not a bookable offence once he had his undershirt on and not his bare chest. The GFA chould no sit down like mumus and allow these situations to go cos it cld come back to haunt us

  5. jb says:

    IT BOOKABLE offense..he is not allowed to show his undershirt or underpants…

  6. Phemostiga says:

    Were re d zombies who talk shit

  7. mr coach pls ghanaians need a striker who will score goals so play clottey ahead of gyan against niger on monday.
